    I would love to be able to post my fuelly info in my signature, but it doesn't allow it. Is there any reason why we don't allow bb code links in signatures?

    It allows me to post it in the body of the message, so I am not sure what the issue would be. Here is what I am wanting in my signature:

    I believe the reasoning for that is so that there isn't people with signatures taking up half the page, like on other forums. I do kind of get tired of scrolling through some peoples signatures, I keep mine short and sweet lol. Yours isn't bad, but it'd open new doors for other to post images in their signatures too

    I agree with Chris - some sigs get too freaking huge!

    Chris' answer was right on. It's also mentioned in the FAQs https://challengerlife.com/faq.php




    By itself, your fuelly image isn't bad at all.

    But with many users using the same or similar images, the pages would soon begin to look like the other forums that place ads in every available spot they can, or like this

    Sometimes less is more. ;)

    How about the extra space next to the picture in the avatar? Is there any way to put anything there? I understand the box goes along with the users "level" and size of the picture used but there seems to be plenty of extra space there and since it is just blank space anyhow... maybe I should wise up and just be silent. Forget what I said, I am going back to work now.

    I am back with another question. How do I move my info to beside my avatar picture instead of below? This would save space in my case?

    LOL. That space never used to be that big till we went with the ginormous avatars... but it doesn't distract you from the avatars and real info. Plus it's silver. ;)

    Well it appears Houdini changed the setting and hooked me up with my signature I wanted. I appreciate it!

    Keeping track of that fuel mileage stuff would just drive me more nuts! It's interesting, but it would drive me nuts, er, more nuts.
